Actor Johnny Depp sued $ 50 million against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The actress and one of the stars of the action movie Aquamen wrote an editorial in December in the Washington Post, which described the negative reaction she experienced after speaking about domestic violence. She wrote that she "felt the full force of the anger of our culture against women" after allegations of ill-treatment.
She never identified Depp by name, but his lawsuit, filed on Friday in Fairfax County, Virginia District Court, claims that the article was clearly about the charges that she filed against Depp as their marriage broke up in 2016.
Now the 55-year-old actor, represented by lead lawyer Brittany Whitesell Byles and Stein Mitchell in Washington, DC, is trying to clear his name. The 30-page application describes a difficult 15-month marriage of the couple, as well as Depp's statements that he became her victim.
It states that a month after their wedding, Hurd "spent time in a new relationship with the founder of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk." While Depp was not in the country, making the film, Hurd allegedly "asked employees in Eastern Colombia to give her friend Elon access to the building's garage and elevator at the penthouse" late at night, and they showed that they did.
According to the complaint, Hurd also “threw a bottle of vodka into Mr. Depp in Australia when she learned that Mr. Depp wants the couple to enter into a postpartum agreement regarding the assets in their marriage. After Depp said he wanted to get out of the marriage, Hurd allegedly lured him to his penthouse in order to collect his personal belongings.
Hurd and Depp completed the divorce in 2017.
